Everything in front of the A-pillars is brand new, from the fascia to the grille.

The rear end has been updated, as well, with new taillights and a new feature line across the bumper.

The outer lights have been raised up on the bumper for a slightly less dreary-looking front end.

The updated rear bumper also packs lower corners, not that it's the first place you'd look.

As always, the interior features a wide variety of available veneers, many of them wood.

Even on the "base" Mulsanne, the rear seats are thrones.

All new for 2017 is the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase.

The wheelbase has been extended by nearly 10 inches, and every bit of that goes to rear-seat legroom.

The Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase also offers up a variety of two-tone paint jobs.

This model will likely sell the best in China, where long-wheelbase models are highly sought after.

The interior features all the same updates present on the standard Mulsanne.

Each back seat features its own airplane-style leg rest, which extends from underneath the seat.

Its 6.75-liter V-8 has been upgraded to provide 530 horsepower and 811 pound-feet of torque.

That grants the vehicle diamond-quilted leather seats, a knurled gear shift, alloy pedals and optional carbon-fiber trim bits.

Naturally, there are plenty of Speed badges to go around, as well.
